Actually, if you are a complete beginner, you might want to look at the following website:


That site is amazing and has "Try it out yourself" deals where you can test the code you are learning! It's amazing!

Once you get a little more advance, you can try and check out php.net!


Php.net has many great tutorials created by visitors! you can learn a lot from a couple people just expressing their thoughts! go check it out! It's really awesome!

With the previous two posters I would recomment Tizag, and php.net. the W3 schools are ok, but I never personally found them to be much use for php or javascript.

What I have found immensely useful though it the php manual for all of its functions. If you read the comments below that users have contributed you can learn a LOT from them.

Of course the only REAL way to learn to program PHP is to experiment. Not just read and say to yourself "Yep, i understand that. it looks easy" because when you come to write you you will find yourself saying "Errr... where do I start?". You have to try things, experiment, if it doesn't work google what you're trying to do until you work out a way to re-write your code and make it work.

Also take shortcuts to make your life easier. Instead of creating new files, saving them, uploading them etc, just use a site like this to test small snippets of code online: http://www.freephptest.com/

Also learn to debug. Along with the Tips in my signature I will soon write an article on debugging but the basics are that you print lines of text placed in strategic places in your code so that you can follow its execution.

I have found that some can be harder to understand than others. If I were you I would look at all tutorials and decide which makes more sense to you.

I would agree with all the replies you have had.

When you have the basics and if you are using Dreamweaver I would highly recommend


Really excellent tutorials and a very easy to understand presentation.

And also take a look at http://www.lynda.com/

But there is a tremendous amount of information available on the net. If I have a problem I just do a web search with a brief description and mostly find the answers.

Finally many of the guys on this site are really expert and seem to want to be helpful to newcomers. So at least you already found a good site.
